Transmission Repair Phoenix
A lot of folks in Phoenix feel a little uneasy about transmission repair. But there’s no need to worry. Virginia Auto Service is here to help you feel at ease by taking care of you, your transmission, and your wallet. Phoenix’s Virginia Auto Service is composed of a team of ASE certified technicians who are adept at the diagnosis and solutions for all transmission problems.
There are a few things to keep in mind when faced with extensive auto transmission repair. Knowing the cost difference for a repair versus a replacement will help you make a qualified decision as to which course of action to take.
In the case of an extensive damage, it can actually save you money to go for the replacement option. However, if only minor repairs are needed, we will always suggest the repair option. By using your NAPA Easy pay card, you get an upgrade to a two-year, 24,000 mile warranty on all parts and labor we conduct for your transmission service.
Ultimately, it is best to avoid the high prices of transmission repair by conducting preventative maintenance. Transmission flush and changing the filter at the recommended intervals is one of the easiest ways to extend the life of your auto transmission. If you use your vehicle more often, it is best to have a transmission flush more regularly to prevent damage.
Knowing what constitutes a potential problem will help you prevent massive repair costs and lengthen the life of your auto transmission. Here are a few tips to help you keep an eye on the health of your vehicle’s transmission:
- If you discover a leak of red fluid from your vehicle, you may want to have the transmission fluid immediately checked. Insufficient fluid will destroy your transmission in a very short time, so keep an eye out for any leaks—particularly for red fluids.
- If your RPM’s are bouncing when you shift gears, your transmission could be slipping. A slipped transmission can make your vehicle unsafe for driving. Often, a slipped transmission is caused by a worn or unadjusted clutch. But it can also be because of an internal damage in the system.
- Any sort of noise when shifting normally is definitely unhealthy. Low fluid levels or damage to the internal gears can cause a whirring or “buzzing” noise. Check the fluid levels immediately or bring it to Virginia Auto Service for a transmission repair service.
- If your transmission is overheating or making a burning smell, this could be a serious issue. Top off your transmission fluid and contact Virginia Auto Service immediately. We can make arrangements to have your vehicle towed directly to our shop.
Virginia Auto Service technicians are ASE certified and capable of repairing or replacing your transmission quickly and with the lowest possible cost to you. Whether your transmission needs a fluid change, clutch adjustment, or a full rebuild, Virginia Auto Service is here to end all of your transmission worries.
